    I have a friend who got reservations for a Disney resort through a different website. Can she still Buy tickets through Disney and get a magic band?

    Hi Rachel,

    Glad you stopped by today the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am sure you will help your friend plan the perfect vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.

    There are many Benefits for Staying at Disney Resort Hotels, including complimentary MagicBands for every Guest. You can book a room-only stay many ways. However, a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, which includes a stay and Theme Park Tickets, can only be booked directly online, by speaking to a Vacation Planning Specialist at (407) 939-1936, or a travel agent. These packages are also the only way to add a Disney Dining Plan to your stay.

    One last tip: if you book a room-only stay, you should purchase Theme Park Tickets at least 60 days in advance, since that is when you can start making FastPass+ reservations for your favorite attractions. Simply Link them to your My Disney Experience account. Happy planning!
